Student Stories

Haoze from China

Chinese culture is certainly distinctive, alongside the development of China’s economy and globalization. The learning of Chinese language is increasingly important. Chinese as a subject is both for Chinese native speakers who wish to gain a greater insight into their own language and into what NCEA is all about, as well as for other students who wish to understand Chinese language, people and  culture better and have a wider career path open to them. In the course, speaking, writing and reading are all included and equally valued.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a subject that Long Bay College students, international or domestic, take to improve their English-speaking skills, as well as their writing and reading, if English is an additional language for them. This subject provides them with the necessary skill-set that enables them to do well and succeed in other English enriched subjects. Since I came to New Zealand, doing EAP at Long Bay College has been the most helpful subject I take, as it not only helps me communicate better with the people around me, but it also prepares me with the appropriate vocabulary and knowledge for my other subjects.

Teresa from Columbia

I have been in New Zealand for 3 months now – school is awesome and all the classes are fun. We work with the other students and always learn something new in each lesson. You can learn a lot of new topics that you can use for university.

Business Studies is one of my favourite subjects at Long Bay College. In Business Studies, you run your own business and earn profit from it. In the Business Studies class, we have to run our own companies with our classmates. We study theory together, make products together, then sell our products on market day. We do not only work as a team, we also work as a family. This mode of teamwork really helps me to improve my ability in the subject and my confidence, as well as to communicate in English.

Drama is the perfect subject for you if you love theatre, music, dance and performing. The classes involve a lot of practical work, so it is really easy to make new friends and improve your language. At first, it can be a little tough because you need to communicate a lot, but it gets easier. The environment in drama is really family-like and everyone is always there to help you out. Drama definitely helped me to be self-confident in unfamiliar environments, and I’ve met a lot of friends in this subject.
